Attire and Packing Tips

From what to wear to what to leave at home. Here, find our guidelines for what to bring along on your trip.

In keeping with our friendly yet sophisticated onboard environment, we encourage guests to follow a “resort casual” dress code.

Out of respect for others, bare feet, tank tops, baseball caps, bathing suits, shorts, and torn/distressed jeans are not allowed in the dining room or specialty restaurants. When dining at Windows Café, guests must wear footwear and a cover-up or shirt.

Formal evening wear is not expected nor required in our restaurants. If you prefer to dress more formally, you are welcome to do so. Please note that tuxedo rentals are not available onboard.

Recommended Attire


  • For women: sportswear, casual dresses, skirts, pants and capris, blouses and knit tops. Light fabrics such as linen, cotton, silk, and wool gabardine are always appropriate.
  • For men: sportswear, collared golf and polo shirts, shorts, pants, and a sport coat if desired (not required). Light fabrics such as linen, cotton, silk, and wool gabardine are best.
  • For Discoveries, Aqualina and Prime C Restaurants: No bare feet, ball caps, tank tops or bathing suits are permitted in these areas. Shorts and torn/distressed jeans are not allowed during dinner.
  • For everyone: Be sure to pack a sweater and a lightweight wind breaker for cooler mornings and evenings. And don't forget your workout clothes! You will also need a pair of sneakers or rubber-soled shoes for deck sports, and a swimsuit and cover-up. You may also want to pack more conservative day/port wear for onshore excursions. This clothing should be culturally appropriate for museums, restaurants and religious sites.


Packing Tips

  • Each passenger may bring a reasonable amount of personal property and luggage onboard the ship. For your comfort and convenience, we recommend that you limit larger luggage to one or two pieces. Be sure to check with your airline about baggage allowances and weight and size restrictions, as many carriers today impose additional fees.
  • Please bring a small overnight bag for your last night at sea. Staff will collect your luggage the night before you leave the ship, and you will need this overnight bag to carry your night clothes and toiletries. Be sure to identify all your bags, including carry-ons. Use your Azamara Cruises luggage tags, which should be filled out and affixed to each piece before you leave home.
  • Insure all luggage and valuables. Azamara cannot be responsible for their loss or damage. Baggage protection, as well as a variety of other coverages designed to protect you during your cruise vacation, are offered through Azamara Trip Protection by Allianz.
  • Check to see that your tickets, boarding card and other documents are in order, and pack them in a bag that you carry with you. 
  • Remember to pack an all-white outfit for our White Night event.
